NASA STI Program ... in Profile 



Since its founding, NASA has been dedicated 
to the advancement of aeronautics and space 
science. The NASA Scientific and Technical 
Information (STI) Program plays a key part 
in helping NASA maintain this important 
role. 

The NASA STI Program provides access to 
the NASA STI Database, the largest collection 
of aeronautical and space science in the world. 
The STI Program is also NASA's institutional 
mechanism for disseminating the results of its 
research and development activities. These 
results are published by NASA in the NASA 
STI Report Series, which includes the 
following report types: 

• TECHNICAL PUBLICATION. Reports of 
completed research or major significant 
phases of research that present the results of 
NASA programs and include extensive data or 
theoretical analysis. Includes compilations of 
significant scientific and technical data and 
information deemed of continuing reference 
value. NASA counterpart of peer-reviewed 
formal professional papers, but has less 
stringent limitations on manuscript length and 
extent of graphic presentations. 

• TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM. Scientific 
and technical findings that are of preliminary 
or specialized interest, e.g., quick release 
reports, working papers, and bibliographies 
that contain minimal annotation. Does not 
contain extensive analysis. 

• CONTRACTOR REPORT. Scientific and 
technical findings by NASA- sponsored 
contractors and grantees. 

• CONFERENCE PUBLICATION. Collected 
papers from scientific and technical 
conferences, symposia, seminars, or other 
meetings sponsored or co-sponsored by 

NASA. 



• SPECIAL PUBLICATION. Scientific, 
technical, or historical information from 
NASA programs, projects, and missions, 
often concerned with subjects having 
substantial public interest. 

• TECHNICAL TRANSLATION. English- 
language translations of foreign scientific 
and technical material pertinent to NASA's 
mission. 

Specialized services that help round out the 
STI Program' s diverse offerings include 
creating custom thesauri, building customized 
databases, organizing and publishing research 
results ... even providing videos. 

The NASA STI Program is managed by the 
NASA STI Program Office (STIPO). STIPO 
is the administrative office at Langley 
Research Center for the NASA STI Program.

Introduction 



This issue of the NASA Video Catalog cites video productions listed in the NASA STI Database. 

The videos listed have been developed by the NASA centers, covering Shuttle mission press con- 
ferences; fly-bys of planets; aircraft design, testing and performance; environmental pollution; 
lunar and planetary exploration; and many other categories related to manned and unmanned 
space exploration. 

Each entry in the publication consists of a standard bibliographic citation accompanied by an 
abstract. The Table of Contents shows how the entries are arranged by divisions and categories 
according to the NASA Scope and Coverage Category Guide. 

For users with specific information, a Title Index is available. A Subject Term Index, based on 
the NASA Thesaurus, is also included.

This is an overview of research being done in laminar flow 
at Ames Dryden Flight Research Center and Langley Research 
Center. Airflow research at Ames Dryden has resulted in a 
special wing covering that will artificially induce laminar flow 
on the wing surface; this specially adapted wing is shown being 
tested in different flying conditions. This video also features 
research done at Langley in producing a chemical covering for 
wings that will make visible natural laminar flow and turbulent 
airflow patterns as they occur. Langley researchers explain 
possible use of this technology in supersonic flight.

Marta Bohn-Meyer discusses the cooperative research 
between Rockwell Industries and NASA research facilities in 
their effort to optimize and maintain the supersonic laminar 
flow on the F-16XL aircraft. Research on the airfoil design, 
chord optimization, introduction of a suction feature to main- 
tain pressure distribution, and CFD, both theoretical and actual 
phenomena, are discussed. Bohn-Meyer discusses the differ- 
ence between supersonic and subsonic laminar flow, cross flow, 
reasons behind using this particular F-16 aircraft for this 
research, and the future of this ongoing research, including the 
data base that investigators are building from wind tunnel data 
and in-flight validation.

This video documents efforts by NASA Lewis Research 
Center researchers to improve ice protection for aircraft. A new 
system of deicing aircraft by allowing a thin sheet of ice to 
develop, then breaking it into particles, is being examined, 
particularly to determine the extent of shed ice ingestion by jet 
engines that results. The process is documented by a high speed 
imaging system that scans the breakup and flow of the ice 
particles at 1000 frames per second. This data is then digitized 
and analyzed using a computer program called WHIPICE, 
which analyzes grey scale images of the ice particles. Detailed

Pilot in Command: An Illustration of Autonomous Flight

Several years of NASA research have produced the 
concept for air traffic management called 'Distributed 
Air/Ground Traffic Management,' a major operational advance- 
ment that should significantly increase the capacity of the 
National Airspace System. A key component, 'Autonomous 
Flight Management,' introduces a new class of aircraft opera- 
tions in which pilots are authorized to freely maneuver and 
execute optimal trajectories independent from air traffic con- 
trollers. These aircraft operators would benefit from significant 
increases in flexibility to optimize all flight operations and 
from avoiding most of the delays associated with ground- 
controlled operations. Responsibilities for aircraft separation 
and arrival flow conformance are transferred to the flight deck, 
and the pilots use computerized decision-support tools to 
accomplish these tasks. A research prototype of these tools 
called the 'Autonomous Operations Planner' is being devel- 
oped at the NASA Langley Research Center. This 14-minute 
video illustrates Autonomous Flight Management from the 
airline pilot's perspective.

NASA's Ames Research Center has developed and is 
testing a new integrated flight and propulsion control system 
that will help pilots land aircraft in adverse weather conditions 
and in small confined ares (such as, on a small ship or flight 
deck). The system is being tested in the V/STOL 
(Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing) Systems research Aircraft 
(VSRA), which is a modified version of the U.S. Marine 
Corps's AV-8B Harrier jet fighter, which can take off and land 
vertically. The new automated flight control system features 
both head-up and panel-mounted computer displays and also 
automatically integrates control of the aircraft's thrust and 
thrust vector control, thereby reducing the pilot's workload and 
help stabilize the aircraft for landing. Visiting pilots will be 
encouraged to test the new system and provide formal evalu- 
ation flights data and feedback. An actual flight test and the 
display panel of control system are shown in this video.

Live footage of a preflight interview with Mission Spe- 
cialist Claude Nicollier is seen. The interview addresses many 
different questions including why Nicollier became an astro- 
naut, the events that led to his interest, any role models that he 
had, and his inspiration. Other interesting information that this 
one-on-one interview discusses is an explanation of the why 
this required mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope 
must take place at such an early date, replacement of the 
gyroscopes, transistors, and computers. Also discussed are the 
Chandra X-Ray Astrophysics Facility, and a brief touch on 
Nicollier' s responsibility during any of the given four space 
walks scheduled for this mission.

This video, using historical film footage, photography, and 
computer animation, describes the launch, flight, lunar landing 
and exploration, and return flight of Apollo 12, one of the 
manned lunar missions. The astronauts were Charles Conrad, 
Richard Gordon, and Allen Bean. Thirty-six seconds into the 
November 14, 1969 launch, the spacecraft was hit by lightning 
from the thunderstorm surrounding the launch site. In spite of 
this mishap, the vehicle and astronauts were not harmed and 
continued with their mission. The Yankee Clipper (command 
module) docked with the Intrepid (lunar module) and upon 
reaching the Moon, the Intrepid disconnected during lunar 
orbit and descended to the Moon's surface to a landing area 
previously marked by the Surveyor satellite. After lunar 
surface exploration, soil sample collection, satellite mainte- 
nance, and setting up various lunar surface monitoring equip- 
ment (a seismometer and two atmospheric monitors), the 
Intrepid launched back into lunar orbit, docked with the Yankee 
Clipper, and returned to Earth. There are both B/W and color 
photography and film footage, which includes the earth launch, 



15 



lunar orbit, descent and ascent of Intrepid on the Moon, return 
flight, atmospheric reentry, and recovery on the Earth, and 
ground to air and space communication is shown.

The purpose of the Space 2000 Symposium is to present 
the creativity and achievements of key figures of the 20th 
century. It offers a retrospective discussion on space explora- 
tion. It considers the future of the enterprise, and the legacy 
that will be left for future generations. The symposium 
includes panel discussions, smaller session meetings with some 
panelists, exhibits, and displays. The first session entitled 
'From Science Fiction to Science Facts' commences after a 
brief overview of the symposium. The panel discussions 
include talks on space exploration over many decades, and the 
missions of the millennium to search for life on Mars. The 
second session, 'Risks and Rewards of Human Space Explo- 
ration,' focuses on the training and health risks that astronauts 
face on their exploratory mission to space. Session three, 
'Messages and Messengers Informing and Inspire Space Ex- 
ploration and the Public,' focuses on the use of TV medium by 
educators and actors to inform and inspire a wide variety of 
audiences with adventures of space exploration. Session four, 
'The Legacy of Carl Sagan,' discusses the influences made by 
Sagan to scientific research and the general public. In session 
five, 'Space Exploration for a new Generation,' two student 
speakers and the NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin 
address the group. Session six, 'Destiny or Delusion? — 
Humankind's Place in the Cosmos,' ends the symposium with 
issues of space exploration and some thought provoking 
questions. Some of these issues and questions are: what will be 
the societal implications if we discover the origin of the 



16 



universe, stars, or life; what will be the impact if scientists find 

clear evidence of life outside the domains of the Earth; should 

there be limits to what humans can or should learn; and what 

visionary steps should space-faring people take now for future 

generations.

The X-ray Timing Explorer (XTE), launched on Dec. 30, 
1995, is a Satellite that observes the fast-moving, high-energy 
worlds of black holes, neutron stars, x-ray pulsars and bursts of 
X-rays that light up the sky and then disappear forever. This 
videotape presents a pre-launch science briefing to the press by 
a few of the scientist and managers associated with the XTE 
satellite. The moderator for the press briefing is Jim Sahli, from 
the Public Affairs Office at Goddard Space Flight Center 
(GSFC). He introduces Alan Bunner, of the High Energy 
Astrophysics at NASA Headquarters; Fred Lamb, from the 
University of Illinois; Richard Mashotzky, X Ray Scientist at 
GSFC; Rick Rothschild, Principal Investigator from the Uni- 
versity of California at San Diego; and Dale Schultz, the XTE 
project manager at GSFC. Dr. Bunner explains the electromag- 
netic spectrum, the placement of x-rays and the importance of 
the XTE observations to a better understanding of the Uni- 
verse. Dr. Lamb, explains the difference between white dwarfs, 
neutron stars and black holes, and the type of observations that 
the XTE will give to a further understanding of these phenom- 
ena. Dr. Mashotzky expands the viewpoint to beyond the 
galaxy, and explains the interests of scientists who hope to use 
XTE to further study Quasars and Active Galactic Nuclei. Dr. 
Rothschild reviews some of the features of XTE, using a 
diagram to show the features of interest, such as the X ray 
Telescopes, and the collecting Proportional Counter Array 
(PCA.) Mr. Schultz presents a videotape tour of the XTE, in 
which he shows the scientific instruments and the other 
features of the satellite. In this tour, the source of each of the 
instruments is noted. Questions from the members of the press 
are then fielded. Many of the questions are about the cost of the 
XTE and any problems that are anticipated in regards to the 
launch.

Dr. France Cordova, NASA's Chief Scientist opened this, 
the third session in the NASA Administrator's Seminar Series, 
by asking the following question: 'What would be a bold and 
aspiring agenda for America's next era in space?' It aimed at 
answering the following questions: What do we know about 
the universe? How do we know it? (Dr. Cordova also men- 



24 



tioned that the first seminar was about the definition of cellular 
life and how to recognize it, and featured as speakers, Dr. Lynn 
Margoles and Dr. Leslie Orgle.) Administrator Daniel S. 
Goldin was introduced; he welcomed the attendees, and 
remarked that NASA personnel have a critical need to explain 
to Congress and the public why a space program is important. 
Congress and the public pay for the space programs. Therefore 
the programs' importance cannot remain in the sole domain of 
scientists. The first speaker, Dr. Vera Ruben of the Department 
of Terrestrial Magnetism at the Carnegie Institute of Washing- 
ton, was introduced as an art historian expert in cosmology and 
an observational astronomer. Dr. Ruben brought up a number 
of questions regarding the substance, location, and origin of 
dark matter, radiation, galaxies, and the lumpy structure of 
galaxies in space, as well as the age and density of our 
universe. The next speaker was Dr. Bohdan Paczynski, a 
theoretical astrophysicist from Princeton University's Depart- 
ment of Astrophysical Sciences. The final speaker, Dr. Linda 
Schale is a cosmologist from the University of Texas at Austin. 
She was said to be a 'paleontologist of the human mind' who 
tries 'to understand mechanisms people use to understand the 
world'. The concluding discussion centered on why NASA 
scientists don t communicate better with people who are not 
highly educated. This is a big concern because to continue its 
work, NASA needs to communicate the importance of its goals 
to the average person. Additional information is included in the 
original extended abstract.

Steve Wall is the host of this video entitled, 'Return to the 
Red Planet'. Live animation of the Mars Observer orbiting 
Mars is presented. Steve Wall explains the spacecraft insertion 
maneuver and also explains the purpose for the Mars Observer 
launch. Live coverage of the Cape Canaveral launch of the 
Mars Observer is also presented. Suzanne Dodd, Chief of the 
Mission Planning team describes the burn start and how the 
spacecraft will be captured by Mars' gravity. Glenn Cunning- 
ham, Mars Observer Project Manager, gives background infor- 
mation on the Mars Observer and describes the organizations 
behind the Mars Observer Spacecraft, such as the Deep Space 
Network, the Mission Operation Support Office, Science In- 
vestigators, the Flight Engineering Office, Operations Office, 
and the Ground Data System Office. Dr. William Piotrowski, 
Acting Director, Solar System Exploration Division, NASA, 
talks about the purpose of the Mars Pathfinder which is to 
develop the technology and systems for landing small science 
packages on Mars. Mr. Roger Gibbs, Former Mars Observer 
Spacecraft Systems Engineer, tells us how the Mars Observer 
was built and describes the structural elements on the Mars 
Observer. The 11-month cruise period for the spacecraft is 
given by Joseph Beerer, Manager of the Engineering office. 
The thrust for the Mars Orbit Insertion is described by Ronald 
Klemetson, Technical Manager, Propulsion Subsystem Jet 
Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). George Chen, Lead Engineer 
Attitude and Articulation Subsystem Spacecraft Team, explains 
the importance of the attitude control engines on the Space- 
craft. Marvin Traxler, Manager of Tracking and Data Acquisi- 
tion, describes how searching for a signal from the Mars 
Observer works. See NONP-NASA-VT-2000081555 for a 
continuation of this discussion with Marvin Traxler.

For the first part of this briefing, see NONP-NASA-VT- 
2000081556. Marvin Traxler continues his discussion on signal 
tracking from the Mars Observer. Julie Webster, Lead Engi- 
neer, Telecommunications Subsystem, is introduced. She ex- 
plains how signals coming back from Mars are detected. Dr. 
Pasquale Esposito talks about flyby orbits and capture orbits. 
He says that frequencies coming from the spacecraft can 
determine if the spacecraft has flown by Mars, or if a capture 
orbit has occurred. Charles Whetsel, System Engineer Space- 
craft Team, presents a computer program. He shows where the 
signal will appear on the computer from the Spacecraft. 
Suzanne Dodd presents orbit insertion geometry. Dr. Arden

Albee, Project Scientist Mars Observer Project, Cal Tech tech, 
says that Mars is studied to get more data to confirm their 
hypotheses derived from previous Mars Missions such as the 
Viking Mars Program and the Mariner Program. Dr. Albee also 
describes instrumentation on the Mars Observer such as the 
Ultra Stable Oscillator, Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter, and 
Magnetometer. The camera on the spacecraft is similar to a fax 
machine because it scans one line at a time as the spacecraft 
orbits Mars. Dr. Michael Malin, Principle Investigator Mars 
Observer Camera, Malin Space Science Systems, Inc., describe 
this process.

In this educational video from the 'Liftoff to Learning' 
series, astronauts from the STS-54 Mission (Mario Runco, 
John Casper, Don McMonagle, Susan Helms, and Greg Har- 
baugh) explain how microgravity and weightlessness in space 
affects motion by using both mechanical and nonmechanical 
toys (gravitrons, slinkys, dart boards, magnetic marbles, and 
others). The gravitational effects on rotation, force, accelera- 
tion, magnetism, magnetic fields, center of axis, and velocity 
are actively demonstrated using these toys through experiments 
onboard the STS-54 Mission flight as a part of their spaceborne 
experiment payload.

In this educational 'Liftoff to Learning' video series, 
astronauts from STS-49 Space Shuttle Mission (Thomas Akers, 
Bruce Melnick, Pierre Thuot, Kathy Thorton, Kevin Chilton, 
and Richard Hieb) compare their mission aboard the Space 
Shuttle Endeavor and their shuttle with its namesake, the ship 
'Endeavor', commanded by Captain James Cook of England in 
the late 1700's. Using historical paintings, drawings, and 
computer graphics, Cook's Endeavor is brought to life. Its 
voyage path, problems, biological experiments, and discover- 
ies are shown and compared to the modern-day Endeavor, its 
mission and experiments. The Space Shuttle Endeavor was 
named in 1988, through a nation-wide school contest. It is the 
fifth Space Shuttle to be built and employs new technology in 
its design, for example, its drag shoot for shuttle landings. One

part of the STS-49 Mission was the retrieval of the Intel 
satellite.

and Mission Specialists Jim Voss, Jim Newman, and Mike 
Gernhardt were awakened by the theme song of the television 
cartoon show 'Underdog' on this eighth day of the STS-69 
mission. The retrieval of the Wake Shield Facility (WSF) 
occurred without any major problems. The WSF was unable to 
grow all seven layers of films before its retrieval. Only four 
were grown due to thermal problems.

movie, 'Lady and the Tramp', awakened the astronauts, Cmdr. 
Dave Walker, Pilot Ken Cockrell, and Mission Specialists Jim 
Voss, Jim Newman, and Mike Gernhardt, on the ninth day of 



the STS-69 mission. The Wake Shield Facility (WSF) was 
again unberthed from the shuttle cargo bay and , using the 
shuttle's robot arm, held over the side of the shuttle for five 
hours where it collected data on the electrical field build-up 
around the spacecraft as part of the Charging Hazards and 
Wake Studies Experiment (CHAWS). Voss and Gernhardt 
rehearsed their Extravehicular Activity (EVA) spacewalk, 
which was planned for the next day. Earth views included 
cloud cover, a hurricane, and its eye.

objectives of this mission are to include a docking between Mir 
and the Space Shuttle and the transfer of a Russian docking 
module, water, supplies, and two solar arrays to the Mir space 
station. This mission highlights the first time that astronauts 
from Canada, Russia, the U.S. and the European Space Agency 
(ESA) will be onboard a single spacecraft in space at the same 
time. Additional experimental payloads onboard the shuttle are 
the GLO-4 PASDE Payload (GPP) experiment and the Photo-

about living in space and space flight, and explaining the 
delicate maneuvers that the shuttle will have to perform for the 
Mir docking procedures scheduled for the next day. Due to the 
awkward angle that the shuttle will use to approach the Mir, the 
docking procedure will be done in an almost blind state.

how or whether it could stabilize itself without using satellite 
lifetime-limiting propellants. Casper was scheduled to take 
time out during the final phase of the rendezvous to talk to 
fellow astronaut Shannon Lucid and her two cosmonaut 
crewmates aboard the Russian Space Station Mir. Various 
views of the Earth can be seen.

attention to the deployment of a small technology demonstra- 
tion satellite known as PAMS. The Passive Aerodynamically 
Stabilized Magnetically-damped Satellite uses aerodynamic 
stabilization to orient itself properly and demonstrates a 
technique that could prolong the lifetime of a satellite by 
reducing or eliminating the requirement for attitude control 
propellants. After Mission Specialist Mario Runco deploys the 
satellite from a canister in the rear of Endeavor's payload bay, 
it drifts away from the orbiter in a rotating, unstable attitude by 
design to evaluate how quickly and effectively the spacecraft 
can stabilize itself using the aerodynamic stabilization method 
rather than by thrusters. Later in the day the crew is seen being 
interviewed by Canadian Television.

between the American astronauts and the Russian cosmonauts 
are seen flying solo once again after undocking from the Mir 
Space Station. As Atlantis/Mir flew over the Ural Mountains of 
central Asia, the docking hooks and latches that joined the 
vehicles together were commanded open and Atlantis drifted 
slowly away from Mir. Wilcutt then initiated a tail-forward 
fly-around of the Russian space station. After one and one-half 
revolutions around Mir, Atlantis' jets were fired in a separation 
maneuver to enable Atlantis to break away from Mir. On board 
Atlantis, the six-member crew is settling back into its normal 
routine with a fairly light schedule for the remainder of the day. 
Early in the morning as Atlantis flew over the USA, the crew 
took time to talk with anchors for the CBS Up to the Minute' 
network news broadcast.

of docked operations. The continuing transfer of logistical 
supplies and scientific hardware can be seen proceeding 
smoothly. Apt and Walz once again worked with the Active 
Rack Isolation System experiment to replace a broken pushrod. 
With that complete, Apt monitors the ARIS experiment as 
Readdy and Korzun fire small maneuvering jets on their 
spacecraft to test the ability of ARIS to damp out any 
disturbances created by the firings. Walz also is continuing his 
work with the Mechanics of Granular Materials experiment in 
Atlantis' double Spacehab module. The astronauts used the 
large format IMAX camera to conduct a photographic survey 
of Mir from the Shuttle's flight deck windows while Akers shot 
IMAX movie scenes of Readdy, Wilcutt, and Korzun in the 
Spektr module.

Cmdr. William F. Readdy, Pilot Terrence W. Wilcutt, Mission 
Specialists, Thomas D. Akers, John Blaha, Jay Apt, and Carl E. 
Walz, are seen docking with the Mir Space Station. After two 
hours of pressure and leak checks, the hatches between the two 
spacecraft is than opened. The two crews are seen greeting one 
another to begin five days of joint operations. The rendezvous 
and docking went flawlessly as Readdy flew the orbiter 
manually through the final 2,000 feet. Docking occurred within 
seconds of the pre-planned time and flight controllers reported 
that only slight oscillations were felt through the Orbiter 
Docking System as the two spacecraft locked together. Within 
hours of the hatch opening, crew members John Blaha and 
Shannon Lucid formally swapped places before going to bed 
with Blaha becoming a member of the Mir-22 crew and Lucid 
joining the STS-79 crew to wrap up 179 days as a member of 
the Mir station. Blaha joins Mir 22 Commander Valery Korzun 
and Flight Engineer Alexander Kaleri on Mir for the next four 
months. Soon after the crew members completed their wel- 
coming ceremony, they went to work, hauling bags of water 
and other supplies from the Shuttle's Spacehab module into the 
Mir. More than 4000 pounds of equipment and logistical 
supplies will be transferred to the Mir before Atlantis undocks 
from the space station.

The flight crew of STS-80, Cmdr. Kenneth D. Cockrell, 



Pilot Kent V. Rominger, Mission Specialists, Tamara E. Jerni- 
gan, Thomas D. Jones, and F. Story Musgrave are seen 
performing pre-launch activities such as eating the traditional

mission. After the closing of the hatch and arm retraction, 
launch activities are shown including the countdown, engine 
ignition, launch, and the separation of the Solid Rocket 
Boosters (SRB) from the shuttle. The crew completes the first 
major objective of the mission with the deployment of the 
Orbiting Retrievable Far and Extreme Ultraviolet Spectrometer 
(ORFEUS) on the reusable Shuttle Pallet Satellite. The crew 
than begins final preparations for the release of Wake Shield. 
Jones powers up the shuttle's Canadian-built robot arm and 
grapples the satellite, while Jernigan powers up the Orbiter 
Space Vision System, which will be used to track precisely the 
Wake Shield's location. Cockrell places Columbia in a gravity 
gradient attitude to minimize disturbances during the release. 
Jones uses the robot arm to hold Wake Shield in position for a 
two-and-a-half hour cleansing by atomic oxygen molecules 
before moving the arm to the deploy position. The failure of the 
hatch to properly open causes the cancellation of all EVA's 
planned for this mission by Jernigan and Jones. The mission 
ends with the shuttle landing at the Kennedy Space Center.

ahead of schedule, allowing them to start the second spacewalk 
of the flight. Harbaugh and Tanner went right to work, 
replacing a degraded Fine Guidance Sensor and a failed 
Engineering and Science Tape Recorder with new spares. The 
astronauts also installed a new unit known as the Optical 
Control Electronics Enhancement Kit, which will further 
increase the capability of the new Fine Guidance Sensor. 
During the spacewalk, the astronauts and flight controllers took 
note of cracking and wear incurred by thermal insulation which

telescope where they replaced covers over Hubble 's magne- 
tometers, which are used to sense the telescope's position in 
relation to the Earth through data acquired from the Earth's 
magnetic field. The spacewalking astronauts then place thermal 
blankets of multi-layer material over two areas of degraded 
insulation around the light shield portion of the telescope just 
below the top of the astronomical observatory.

data processing, electronics and scientific instrument telemetry 
packages. Following the completion of that work, Lee and 
Smith briefly return to the airlock while flight controllers 



evaluated a possible glitch with one of four Reaction Wheel 
Assembly units in Hubble used to maneuver the telescope for 
its scientific observations. A spare Reaction Wheel Assembly 
was available aboard Discovery for a swap out during an 
additional spacewalk had it been necessary, but a few hours 
later, after further analysis, payload controllers reported that 
the Reaction Wheel Assembly was in excellent shape and 
operating at the proper speed.

and 5. During the first EVA the earth can be seen clearly in a 
reflection off of HST's offshroud during its 60th orbit crossing 
the equator. The HST deployment and views of the Hale-Bopp 
comet are clearly seen before Discovery's reentry and landing. 
After reentry a beautiful view of Discovery moving at 10,400 
mph can be seen looking east from Mission Control. The ususal 
twin sonic boom precedes Discovery's touchdown on runway 
15 at Kennedy Space Center. This second HST service mission

new crewmates played music as Atlantis departed following 
the joint phase of the flight. Atlantis' undocking from Mir was 
modified from previous joint missions in that a flyaround of the 
station for photographic purposes was not conducted. Instead, 
Pilot Eileen Collins guided Atlantis below the Mir after the two 
spacecraft completed their physical separation, stopping three 
times at distances of 90, 300 and 1,500 feet to collect data from 
a European sensor device designed to assist future rendezvous 
of a proposed European Space Agency resupply vehicle with 
the International Space Station. Once the data collection was 
completed, the shuttle took advantage of natural orbital me- 
chanics to drift beneath and out in front of Mir.

Wetherbee manually flys Atlantis up toward Mir. After dock- 
ing, the hatches between the two vehicles are swung open 
allowing Wetherbee and Mir Commander Anatoly Solovyev to 
greet each other in the airlock. Wetherbee hands Solovyev a 
new computer for the Mir which was brought into orbit by 
Atlantis for installation following the docking phase of the 
mission. The ten crewmembers spend a few minutes greeting 
one another at the start of their joint work which will involve 
the transfer of some four tons of supplies and water from 
Atlantis to the Mir.

blood pressure regulation in microgravity. Crew members 
repeat an experiment in which they use an innovative technique 
called microneurography. This involves placing a very fine 
needle in a nerve just below the knee, allowing nerve signals 
traveling from the brain to the blood vessels to be measured 
directly while the cardiovascular system is challenged using 
the Lower Body Negative Pressure device. LBNP is a hi-tech 
canister that pulls bodily fluids into the lower extremities, 
simulating the effect of standing on Earth.

brain critical for maintaining balance and for processing 
information from the limbs so they can be moved smoothly; 
and the cerebrum, one part of which controls automatic 
functions such as body temperature regulation and the body's 
internal clock, and the cortical region that controls cognitive

On this twelth day of the STS-90 mission, the flight crew, 
Cmdr. Richard A. Searfoss, Pilot Scott D. Altman, and Mission 
Specialists Richard M. Linnehan, Dafydd Rhys Williams and 
Kathryn P. Hire, and Payload Specialists Jay C. Buckey and 
James A. Pawelczyk continue their investigations into how the 
human nervous system adapts to the weightlessness of space. 
Buckey and Pawelczyk take part in a variety of autonomic 
experiments designed to examine blood pressure regulation in 
microgravity. The test uses a special device resembling a 
hi-tech sack to place a stress on the cardiovascular system 
similar to that experienced when standing in Earth's gravity.

activity on board Columbia. The science crew of Mission 
Specialists Rick Linnehan and Dave Williams, along with 
Payload Specialists Jay Buckey and Jim Pawelczyk, continue 
investigations into how the human nervous system adapts to 
the weightlessness of space. All four serve as subjects in a 
vestibular experiment that uses an on-board rotating chair. The 
Visual and Vestibular Integration System (WIS) correlates eye

movements with balance. Developed by the European Space 
Agency, the chair stimulates the human balance system with 
both spinning and tilting sensations. Infrared video cameras 
observe and capture the eye movements that accompany the 
exercise.

Behavior Testing of Adult Rats experiment. This is the first of 
two behavior testing sessions with the adult rats being used for 
this experiment. The rats will have a 'hyper drive' unit placed 
on their head which has recording electrodes made of micro- 
scopic wires that are positioned in the brain to record activity 
in the hippocampus. The hippocampus is that portion of the 
brain used to develop spatial maps to help us navigate from one 
place to the other. With the 'hyper drive' units in place, the rats 
will then be put through a maze or on a track. While the rat is 
maneuvering on the maze or track, the cell activity of the 
hippocampus will be measured and recorded.

On this fifth day of the STS-88 mission, the flight crew, 
Commander Robert D. Cabana, Pilot Frederick W. Sturckow, 
and Mission Specialists Nancy J. Currie, James H. Newman, 
Jerry L. Ross, and Sergei Krikalev are awakened with the song 
'Jerry the Rigger,' in honor of Mission Specialist Jerry Ross. 
Ross and Newman are then seen being readied for the first 
EVA. This space walk, which will last 6-1/2 hours, will focus 
on connecting computer and electrical cables between Unity, 
the two mating adapters attached to either end of Unity, and 
Zarya. In all, Ross and Newman will make about 40 connec- 
tions during the spacewalk. This will enable power to flow to 
Unity for the first time in orbit and will permit Unity's 



125 



avionics, computers and heaters to be activated.

Commander Robert D. Cabana, Pilot Frederick W. Sturckow, 
and Mission Specialists Nancy J. Currie, James H. Newman, 
Jerry L. Ross, and Sergei are awakened to the sounds of 
'Somewhere Over the Rainbow,' requested by Commander 
Bob Cabana's daughter, Sarah. With the three-story-high Unity 
connecting module latched upright in the shuttle's payload bay, 
Cabana takes manual control of the shuttle as it moves to 
within about a half-mile of Zarya. Cabana and Sturckow 
execute a sequence of maneuvers that will bring Endeavour 
directly above the module. Currie uses the robotic arm to 
capture the module. She then positions Zarya above Unity's 
docking mechanism.

Commander Robert D. Cabana, Pilot Frederick W. Sturckow, 
and Mission Specialists Nancy J. Currie, James H. Newman, 
Jerry L. Ross, and Sergei Krikalev are awakened by the sounds 
of Elvis Presley's 'Hound Dog'. Today's activities are devoted 
mostly to tasks that ready the station for future assembly work. 
The crew's first job is to release some cable ties on four cables 
connected on an earlier space walk, three located on Unity's 
upper mating adapter and one on its lower adapter, to relieve 
tension on the lines. The space walkers also will check an 
insulation cover on one cable connection on the lower Pres- 
surized Mating Adapter (PMA 2) to make sure it is fully 
installed. Near the end of the space walk, the astronauts 



conduct a detailed photographic survey of the space station 
from top to bottom. Finally, each astronaut test fires the 
Simplified Aid for Extravehicular Activity Rescue (SAFER) jet 
backpacks they are wearing, a type of space 'lifejacket,' that 
would allow an astronaut to fly back to the station if they 
should ever become untethered.

mission. STS-87 will fly the USA Microgravity Payload 
(USMP-4), the Spartan- 201, the Orbital Acceleration Research 
Experiment (OARE), the EVA Demonstration Flight Test 5 
(EDFT-05). The objective of the observations are to investigate 
the mechanisms causing the heating of the solar corona and the 
acceleration of the solar wind which originates in the corona. 
While flying separately in the cargo bay, the Orbital Accelera- 



128 



tion Research Experiment (OARE) is an integral part of 
USMP-04. It is a highly sensitive instrument designed to 
acquire and record data of low-level aerodynamic acceleration 
along the orbiter's principal axes in the free-molecular flow 
regime at orbital altitudes and in the transition regime during 
re-entry. OARE data will support advances in space materials 
processing by providing measurements of the low-level, low 
frequency disturbance environment affecting various micro- 
gravity experiments. OARE data will also support advances in 
orbital drag prediction technology by increasing the under- 
standing of the fundamental flow phenomena in the upper 
atmosphere.

In the 'Path to the Future' presentation held at NASA's 
Langley Center on March 31, 1999, NASA's Administrator 
Daniel S. Goldin outlined the future direction and strategies of 
NASA in relation to the general space exploration enterprise. 
NASA's Vision, Future System Characteristics, Evolutions of 
Engineering, and Revolutionary Changes are the four main 



topics of the presentation. In part one, the Administrator talks 
in detail about NASA's vision in relation to the NASA 
Strategic Activities that are Space Science, Earth Science, 
Human Exploration, and Aeronautics & Space Transportation. 
Topics discussed in this section include: space science for the 
21st century, flying in mars atmosphere (mars plane), exploring 
new worlds, interplanetary internets, earth observation and 
measurements, distributed information-system-in-the-sky, sci- 
ence enabling understanding and application, space station, 
microgravity, science and exploration strategies, human mars 
mission, advance space transportation program, general avia- 
tion revitalization, and reusable launch vehicles. In part two, he 
briefly talks about the future system characteristics. He dis- 
cusses major system characteristics like resiliencey, self- 
sufficiency, high distribution, ultra-efficiency, and autonomy 
and the necessity to overcome any distance, time, and extreme 
environment barriers. Part three of Mr. Goldin' s talk deals with 
engineering evolution, mainly evolution in the Computer 
Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) 
systems. These systems include computer aided drafting, 
computerized solid models, virtual product development 
(VPD) systems, networked VPD systems, and knowledge 
enriched networked VPD systems. In part four, the last part, the 
Administrator talks about the need for revolutionary changes in 
communication and networking areas of a system. According 
to the administrator, the four major areas that need cultural 
changes in the creativity process are human-centered comput- 
ing, an infrastructure for distributed collaboration, rapid syn- 
thesis and simulation tools, and life-cycle integration and 
validation. Mr. Goldin concludes his presentation with the 
following maxim 'Collaborate, Integrate, Innovate or Stagnate 
and Evaporate.' He also answers some questions after the 
presentation.

primary goals of this mission were to work on logistics and 
resupply the International Space Station (ISS). This is the first 



135 



flight to dock to the International Space Station. The primary 
payloads are the Russian cargo crane, known as STRELA, 
which the astronauts mount to the exterior of the Russian 
station segment, the SRACEHAB Oceaneering Space System 
Box (SHOSS), and a U.S. built crane called the ORU Transfer 
Device (OTD). Other payloads include the Student Tracked 
Atmospheric Research Satellite for Heuristic International 
Networking Equipment (STARSHINE), the Shuttle Vibration 
Forces Experiment (SVF), and the Orbiter Integrated Vehicle 
Health Monitoring - HEDS Technology Demonstration (IVHM 
HTD). The traditional pre-launch breakfast, being suited up, 
entry into the Shuttle, and views of the liftoff from several 
different vantage points are shown. In-flight footage includes 
views from the robot arm conducting a television survey of 
Discovery's payload bay and the flawless docking of the Unity 
module with the International Space Station. During the 
docking, camera views from both the ISS and Discovery are 
presented. These activities make up the first three Flight Days 
of STS-96.

In this second part of a three-part video mission-highlights 
set, on-orbit spacecrew activities performed on the STS-96 
Space Shuttle Orbiter Discovery and the International Space 
Station are reviewed. The flight crew consists of Kent V. 
Rominger, Commander; Rick D. Husband, Pilot; and Mission 
Specialists Ellen Ochoa, Tamara E. Jernigan, Daniel T Barry, 
Julie Payette (Canadian), and Valery Ivanovich Tokarev (Rus- 
sian). The primary goals of this mission were to work on 
logistics and resupply the International Space Station. This 
second part in the mission series features video from Flight 
Day 4-7 (FD 4-7). FD 4 of STS-96 presents astronauts Tammy 
Jernigan and Dan Barry completing the second longest space 
walk in shuttle history. Footage includes Jernigan and Barry 
transferring and installing two cranes from the shuttle's pay- 
load bay to locations on the outside of the station. The 
astronauts enter the International Space Station delivering 
supplies and prepare the outpost to receive its first resident 
crew, scheduled to arrive in early 2000 on FD 5. The video also 
captures the crew involved in logistics transfer activities within 
the Discovery /ISS orbiting complex. FD 6 includes footage of 
Valery Tokarev and Canadian astronaut Julie Payette charging 
out the final six battery recharge controller units for two of 
Zarya's power-producing batteries and all crew members' 



involvement in logistics transfer activities from the SPACE- 
HAB module to designated locations in the International Space 
Station. With the transfer work of FD 6 all but complete, the 
astronauts conduct some additional work, installing parts of a 
wireless strain gauge system that will help engineers track the 
effects of adding modules to the station throughout its assem- 
bly. Moving the few remaining items from Discovery to the 
ISS, then closing a series of hatches within the station's 
modules leading back to the shuttle are the primary activities 
contained in FD 7. Final coverage features Discovery's astro- 
nauts finishing their work inside the International Space 
Station, closing all of the hatches and readying the shuttle's 
small thrusters to be fired to raise the entire complex's orbit in 
preparation for the undocking and departure set for FD 8.

In this third part of a three-part video mission-highlights 
set, spacecrew operations between the STS-96 Space Shuttle 
Orbiter Discovery and the International Space Station, as well 
as STS reentry and landing is reviewed. The flight crew 
consists of Kent V Rominger, Commander; Rick D. Husband, 
Pilot; and Mission Specialists Ellen Ochoa, Tamara E. Jerni- 
gan, Daniel T Barry, Julie Payette (Canadian), and Valery 
Ivanovich Tokarev (Russian). The primary goals of this mis- 
sion were to work on logistics and resupply the International 
Space Station. This third part of the three part series includes 
footage from Flight Days 8-11 (FD 8-11) of the mission. FD 8 
includes the crew members moving the last items from 
Discovery into the International Space Station (ISS), closing 
the final hatch on the orbiting outpost and commanding a series 
of 17 pulses of Discovery's reaction control system jets to 
boost the station's orbit. Discovery undocks from the station, 
performs a 2 1/2 lap flyaround of the station, before Husband 
fires Discovery's jets in a final burst to move Discovery away 
from the station, concluding six days of docked operations. 
After the flyaround, Husband fires Discovery's jets to depart 
the station's vicinity. Beginning FD 9, as Discovery departs 
from the station, Mission Specialists Tammy Jernigan and Dan 
Barry pack away the space suit gear they used during their 
spacewalk early in the mission, while Commander Kent 
Rominger and Pilot Rick Husband practice landings on a 
laptop computer program. Mission Specialists Julie Payette 
and Valery Tokarev help to stow gear and repressurize the 



136 



shuttle's cabin to its standard 14.7 pounds per square inch. The 
crew also readies to deploy a small, student-built payload 
called STARSHINE (Student Tracked Atmospheric Research 
Satellite for Heuristic International Networking Equipment). In 
and around landing preparations and the STARSHINE deploy, 
the crew stowe all equipment used throughout the mission. The 
STARSHINE satellite ejects from a canister in Discovery's 
payload bay on FD 10. FD 11 is completed as Discovery 
swoops out of the darkness as Commander Kent Rominger sets 
the shuttle and his crewmates down on Runway 15 at the 
Shuttle Landing Facility in Florida to successfully complete the 
first shuttle mission of the year. Several different views of the 
landing are highlighted in the video.

On this first day of the STS-93 Columbia mission, the 
flight crew, Commander Eileen Collins, Pilot Jeff Ashby and 
Mission Specialists Cady Coleman, Steve Hawley and Michael 
Tognini deployed the Chandra X-Ray Observatory into space. 
This was done after a full night of work and preparation. 
Chandra will study the invisible, and often violent mysteries of 
x-ray astronomy. Commander Collins maneuvered Columbia 
to a safe distance away from the telescope as an internal timer 
counted down to the first of a two-phase ignition of the Inertial 
Upper Stage. After switching to internal battery power until its 



solar rays are deployed, the telescope reaches an oval orbit 

one-third the distance to the Moon to conduct its astronomical 

observations. Since Chandra is safely on its way and the major 

objective of their mission is successfully completed, the 

astronauts end their long day and begin an eight hour sleep 

period.

The five astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia 
began their fourth flight day preparing to make additional 
celestial observations through the shuttle's windows and con- 
tinue work with a variety of instruments. Pilot Jeff Ashby and 
Mission Specialists Steve Hawley and Michael Tognini set up 
an exercise treadmill and the Treadmill Vibration Information 
System (TVIS) which measures vibrations and changes in 
microgravity levels caused by on-orbit workouts. Astronomer 
Hawley again made observations of Venus, Jupiter and the 
Moon with the Southwest Ultraviolet Imaging System 
(SWUIS) as Commander Eileen Collins and Pilot Jeff Ashby 
put the shuttle in the proper orientation for his observations. 



Tognini and Coleman checked the bioprocessing experiments, 
and harvested mouse-ear cress plants as part of the Plant 
Growth in Microgravity experiment. Collins and Ashby once 
again fired the shuttle's engines so that the sensors of the 
Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) satellite were able to 
collect ultraviolet, infrared and visible light data. Columbia 
was orbiting at an altitude of 182 statute miles with all of its 
systems in excellent condition.

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) team is preparing for 
NASA's third scheduled service call to Hubble. This mission, 
STS-103, will launch from Kennedy Space Center aboard the 
Space Shuttle Discovery. The seven flight crew members are 
Commander Curtis L. Brown, Pilot Scott J. Kelly, European 
Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy who 
will join space walkers Steven L. Smith, C. Michael Foale, 
John M. Grunsfeld, and ESA astronaut Claude Nicollier. The 
objectives of the HST Third Servicing Mission (SM3A) are to 
replace the telescope's six gyroscopes, a Fine-Guidance Sen- 
sor, an S-Band Single Access Transmitter, a spare solid-state 
recorder and a high-voltage/temperature kit for protecting the 
batteries from overheating. In addition, the crew plans to install 
an advanced computer that is 20 times faster and has six times 
the memory of the current Hubble Space Telescope computer. 
To prepare for these extravehicular activities (EVAs), the 
SM3A astronauts participated in Crew Familiarization sessions 
with the actual SM3A flight hardware. During these sessions 
the crew spent long hours rehearsing their space walks in the 



Guidance Navigation Simulator and NBL (Neutral Buoyancy 
Laboratory). Using space gloves, flight Space Support Equip- 
ment (SSE), and Crew Aids and Tools (CATs), the astronauts 
trained with and verified flight orbital replacement unit (ORU) 
hardware. The crew worked with a number of trainers and 
simulators, such as the High Fidelity Mechanical Simulator, 
Guidance Navigation Simulator, System Engineering Simula- 
tor, the Aft Shroud Door Trainer, the Forward Shell/Light 
Shield Simulator, and the Support Systems Module Bay Doors 
Simulator. They also trained and verified the flight Orbital 
Replacement Unit Carrier (ORUC) and its ancillary hardware. 
Discovery's planned 10-day flight is scheduled to end with a 
night landing at Kennedy.

The STS-93 flight crew, Commander Eileen M. Collins, 
Pilot Jeffrey S. Ashby, and Mission Specialists Steven A. 
Hawley, Catherine G. Coleman, and Michel Tognini are seen 
performing pre-launch activities such as crew suit-up, and ride 
out to the launch pad for an early morning launch. Also, 
included are various panoramic views of the shuttle on the pad. 
The crew is readied in the White Room for their mission. After 
the closing of the hatch and arm retraction, launch activities are 
shown including countdown, engine ignition, launch, and the 
separation of the Solid Rocket Boosters. Once on-orbit the 
primary objective is to deploy the Advanced X-ray Astrophys- 
ics Facility. Throughout the presentation, the astronauts take 
turns narrating particular aspects of the mission with which 
they are involved. Coleman and Tognini command Chandra to 
spring-eject from its cradle in the payload bay. The crew then 
work on the various experiments being carried out in flight. 
They successfully set up the first observatory using the 
Southwest Ultraviolet Imaging System (SWUIS). The SWUIS 
is used to image planets and other solar system bodies in order 
to explore their atmospheres and surfaces in the ultraviolet 
(UV) region of the spectrum. Tognini conducts a ham radio 
conversation with Jean-Pierre Haignere on the Mir Space 
Station. Towards the end of the mission Ashby, Hawley and 
Tognini set up an exercise treadmill and the Treadmill Vibra- 
tion Information System (TVIS). The live footage ends with 
the reentry of Columbia into the Earth's Atmosphere. The night 
landing includes touchdown, deployment of the drag chute and 
crew departure from the vehicle.

This two-tape Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) video 
production presents a Dec. 8, 1992 press conference held at 
JPL to discuss the final Galileo spacecraft encounter with Earth 
before beginning its journey to Jupiter. The main theme of the 
conference was centered on the significance of the 2nd and 
final Earth/Moon fiyby as being the spacecraft's last planetary 
encounter in the solar system before reaching Jupiter, as well as 
final flight preparations prior to its final journey. Each person 
of the five member panel was introduced by Robert MacMillan 
(JPL Public Information Mgr.) before giving brief presenta- 
tions including slides and viewgraphs covering their area of 
expertise regarding Galileo's current status and future plans. 
After the presentations, the media was given an opportunity to 
ask questions of the panel regarding the mission. Mr. Wesley 
Huntress (Dir. of Solar System Exploration (NASA)), William 
J. ONeill (Galileo Project Manager), Neal E. Ausman, Jr. 
(Galileo Mission Director), Dr. Torrence V Johnson (Galileo 
Project Scientist) and Dr. Ronald Greeley (Member, Imaging

Highlights of the third day of the STS-103 mission on 
board the space shuttle Discovery are shown in this videotape. 
The mission was led by Commander Curtis L. Brown, with 
Pilot Scott J Kelly, and Mission Specialists Steven L. Smith, 
Jean-Francois Clervoy, John M. Grunsfeld, Michael Foale, and 
Claude Nicollier. The main purpose of the mission was to 
service the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The primary 
objective of the mission was to replace all six of the gyroscopes 
that make up the three Rate Sensor Units. In addition the 
Astronauts installed a new computer. During the third day 
when Discovery reached a point about 35 feet from Hubble, 
astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy used the robot arm to capture 
the telescope's grapple fixture located midway up the HST 
structure. The approach to the HST is described and the actual 
maneuver aimed at retrieving the telescope is also described. 
The video includes actual live views of the HST in the shuttle's 
service bay, the shuttle, and shots of Johnson mission control.

Today Discovery's astronauts begin preparing the space- 
craft for it's scheduled return to Earth by checking out the 
flight control system and reaction control jets that support 
re-entry. Later in the day the astronauts begin stowing equip- 
ment used during the past week and start buttoning up on-orbit 
systems. The Ku-band antenna which provides most of the 
capacity for data and television relay was stowed around 8:45 
p.m. The recently refurbished Hubble Space Telescope moves 
slowly through it's checkout sequence before resuming science 



operations. Both the flight control system (FCS) and the 
reaction control jets (RCS) were without issue, with all systems 
ready to support Discovery's return to Earth.

Highlights of the fifth day of the STS-103 mission on 
board the space shuttle Discovery are shown in this videotape. 
The mission was led by Commander Curtis L. Brown, with 
Pilot Scott J Kelly, and Mission Specialists Steven L. Smith, 
Jean-Francois Clervoy, John M. Grunsfeld, Michael Foale, and 
Claude Nicollier. The main purpose of the mission was to 
service the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The primary 
objective of the mission was to replace all six of the gyroscopes 
that make up the three Rate Sensor Units. In addition the 
Astronauts installed a new computer. During the 5th day 
Michael Foale and Claude Nicollier performed the servicing of 
the HST in an 8 hour 10 minute Extravehicular Activity (EVA). 
The servicing included the removal of the old computer and the 
installation of a new, faster computer with more memory. They 
also installed a new outer thermal layer to protect the computer. 
After this was finished the astronauts replaced one of the Fine 
Guidance Sensors (FGS), an optical sensor which allows 
NASA to point the telescope in the desired direction. The video 
includes actual live views of the HST in the shuttle's service 
bay, and footage of the repair and servicing EVA.

Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), with specific focus placed 
on why this SRTM flight is important, and what we will learn 
from the 3D topographic map of the Earth. The two antennas 
that will be taking the pictures, the involvement of the National 
Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), EARTHCAM, a 
student-controlled camera on the Endeavour Orbiter, and 
Kregel' s responsibility during this 24 hour mission are also 
discussed.

Mission Specialists, Claude Nicollier and Jean-Francois Cler- 
voy) deliver a Christmas present to the world, putting the 
Hubble Space Telescope back into service after 24 hours and 
33 minutes of repairs and upgrades that make the orbital 
observatory more capable than ever. European Space Agency 
Astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy uses the shuttle's robot arm 
to release the telescope at 5:03 p.m. CST, then places the arm 
into an upright salute as Commander Curt Brown fires Discov- 
ery's steering jets to begin separating from the telescope. The 
telescope's re-deployment takes place at an altitude of 370 
statute miles as the two spacecraft fly over the South Pacific's 
coral sea northeast of Australia. At 5:39 CST, Brown executes 



a second steering jet burn, lowering Discovery's orbit slightly, 
so that it will begin orbiting faster than the telescope and move 
away at just under 6 statute miles per orbit. Afterward, each of 
the seven astronauts on board calls down holiday wishes from 
space in several languages.

A press conference held on December 16, 1999, to explain 
the reason behind NASA's decision to delay the Discovery's 
launching by a period of 24 hrs is presented. According to Ron 
Dittemore, Space Shuttle Program Manager, the STS-103 team 
delayed the launch because they need extra time to check one 
vendor's manufacturing processes, after an x-ray inspection 
revealed that an improper weld rod was used to weld one of the 
pressuring lines (called NPS lines) in the ET (external tank). 
Mr. Dittemore explained that since it is in the ET (not a major 
load carrying structure and rebuild after each flight), it did not 
pose any danger to the STS-103 flight. However, the same 
vendor also manufactured some parts of the orbiter and the 
team wanted to make sure that the quality of the vendor's 
manufacturing processes is robust before launching the orbiter 
to space. He also answered some reporters' questions.

Covey, Pilot, and mission specialists, John M. Lounge, George 
D. Nelson, and David C. Hilmers. Some of the questions posed 
by scientific journalists addressed the following subjects: 
launch preparation in the month prior to flight, astronaut family 
anxieties in light of the Challenger accident, extent of safety 
measures made prior to flight, flight readiness firing, the crew 
escape system, civilians in space, conservative mission design, 
astronaut selection, mission turnaround and launch rate, and 
the ability to maintain a high level of scrutiny regarding safety 
on future missions.

remarks from Mission Commander Vance D. Brand followed 
by the other 4 spacecrew panel members (Robert L. Gibson, 
Pilot, and Mission Specialists, Bruce McCandless II, Ronald E. 
McNair, Robert L. Stewart) commenting on a home- video that 
includes highlights of the entire flight from take-off to landing. 
This video includes actual footage of the deployment of the 
Westar-VI and PALAPA-B2 satellites as well as preparation for 
and the actual EVA's that featured a Spacepak that enabled the 
astronauts to move outside the orbiter untethered. This video is 
followed by a slide presentation made-up of images taken from 
approximately 2000 still photographs taken during the mission. 
All of the slides are described by members of the space crew 
and include images of the Earth seen from Challenger. A 
question and answer period rounds out the video, which 
include problems encountered with the deployment of the 
satellites as well as the possibilities of sending civilians into 
space.

The primary objective of the STS-93 mission was to 
deploy the Advanced X-ray Astrophysical Facility, which had 
been renamed the Chandra X-ray Observatory in honor of the 
late Indian-American Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyan Chan- 
drasekhar. The mission was launched at 12:31 on July 23, 1999 
onboard the space shuttle Columbia. The mission was led by 
Commander Eileen Collins. The crew was Pilot Jeff Ashby and 
Mission Specialists Cady Coleman, Steve Hawley and Michel 
Tognini from the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES). 
This videotape opens with a view of the shuttle on the launch 
pad. It then shows the flight crew arrival on the 195 foot level 
of the fixed service structure (FSS), walks across the orbiter 
access arm (OAA) into the white room, where the crew is

addresses many different questions including why Coleman 
wanted to be an astronaut, why she wanted to become a 
chemist, and how this historic flight (first female Commander 
of a mission) will influence little girls. Other interesting 
information that this one-on-one interview discusses is the 
deployment of the Chandra satellite, why people care about x 
ray energy, whether or not Chandra will compliment the other 



X Ray Observatories currently in operation, and her responsi- 
bilities during the major events of this mission. Coleman 
mentions the Inertial Upper Stage (IUS) rocket that will deploy 
Chandra, and the design configuration of Chandra that will 
allow for the transfer of information. The Southwest Research 
Ultraviolet Imaging System (SWUIS) Telescope on board 
Columbia, the Plant Growth Investigation in Microgravity

Space Infrared Telescope Facility. A time line of the expected 
operational lifetime of each of the 4 great observatories is 
shown. Specific information about the Chandra Telescope is 
reviewed. The last press briefing presenter is Fred Wojtalik, 
who is the Chandra Program Manager. He reviews the Chan- 
dra's components, and acknowledges a few of the many 
companies that contributed to its building. He also reviews the 
orbital activation and checkout sequences. Question that fol- 
lows, center around contingency plans if some part of the 
planned sequence is not successful. The costs are reviewed, 
and concerns about the Initial Upper Stage, the propulsion unit 
required to take the Chandra to its high orbit are addressed. The 
Chandra is planned to take an eliptical orbit, which is higher 
than the other space telescopes, thus far launched due to the 
requirement to avoid Earth generated X rays.

The primary objective of the STS-99 mission was to 
complete high resolution mapping of large sections of the 
Earth's surface using the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 
(STRM), a specially modified radar system. This radar system 
produced unrivaled 3-D images of the Earth's Surface.. The 
mission was launched at 12:31 on February 11, 2000 onboard 
the space shuttle Endeavour. The mission was led by Com- 
mander Kevin Kregel. The crew was Pilot Dominic L. Pudwill 
Gorie and Mission Specialists Janet L. Kavandi, Janice E. 
Voss, Mamoru Mohri, the National Space Development 
Agency (Japanese Space Agency) and Gerhard P. J. Thiele, 
from DARA (German Space Agency). The astronauts finished 
the mapping operations early on day 1 1 , and then retracted the 



166 



200 foot long mast into its payload bay canister. The mast, the 
longest rigid structure ever deployed in space, supported the 
external antenna during the mapping operation. The videotape 
shows the mast folding into the canister. The final stowage was 
delayed when the three latches on the lid of the canister failed 
to engage as expected. After a few procedures were executed 
the mast canister was sealed, on the third attempt, as shown on 
the videotape. The video also contains several views from the 
STRM. They include a computerized animation of a flight from 
Pasadena to Palmdale, a still view of Fiji, a view of the San 
Francisco Bay Area, and another of Pasadena.

the activities on board the shuttle during day six of the mission. 
By the end of day six, the mission to map 32 million square 
miles of the Earth's surface was about 67.2 percent complete. 
On this video tape there is discussion about the attempts to 
conserve propellant, to allow for the completion of the planned 
mapping. There is discussion by Mamoru Mohri about the 
mission, and Gerhard Thiele answers questions from the 
German Press about the mission. New radar images from the 
SRTM of the Kamchatka Peninsula and northwestern Mongo- 
lia are shown. There are shots of Endeavour's 200-foot mast, 
which required troubleshooting due to a balky small thruster.

The primary objective of the STS-99 mission was to 
complete high resolution mapping of large sections of the 
Earth's surface using the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 
(SRTM), a specially modified radar system. This radar system 
produced unrivaled 3-D images of the Earth's Surface. The 
mission was launched at 12:31 on February 11, 2000 onboard 
the space shuttle Endeavour, and led by Commander Kevin 
Kregel. The crew was Pilot Dominic L. Pudwill Gorie and 
Mission Specialists Janet L. Kavandi, Janice E. Voss, Mamoru 
Mohri from the National Space Development Agency (Japa- 
nese Space Agency), and Gerhard P. J. Thiele from DARA 
(German Space Agency). This videotape shows Mamoru Mo- 
hri boarding a plane at Patrick Air Base after the scrub of the 
mission due to mechanical problems. Prior to his departure, he 
answers a few questions from members of the Japanese press 
who had gathered for his departure.

ninth day of the mission. The announcement of the decision to 
extend the SRTM for 9 hours is made to the crew. This means 
that almost all (i.e., 99.9 %) of the target area of the Earth will 
be imaged, at least once. Some shots of the 200 foot long mast 
where the outboard antennas are located are shown. Mamoru 
Mohri is shown changing a data tape, while he explains the 
rationale for recording rather than transmitting the data. Ger- 
hard Thiele speaks to the German press. At the end of this tape 
are images generated from the SRTM. There are views of 
Oahu, Molokai, Lanai and west Maui, Hawaii; Dallas, Texas; 
Salalah, Oman; and Tasmania, Australia. Animations showing 
the topography around Hokkaido, Japan and Brazil are also 
shown.

conference with the crew. Commander Kregel made a brief 
statement praising the crew for the mission's success and then 
introduced the crewmembers. The crew answered questions 
about the retraction of the mast. The retraction had been 
successful, but the latches to the canister had failed. The 
extreme cold may have caused the problem and a solution was 
proposed from ground control. If this had not worked, an EVA 
would have been required. The astronauts were confident in the 
solution to the problem, however they were ready to perform 
any required EVA. Mamoru Mohri answered questions from 
the Japanese press, speaking in English and Japanese.

metric measurements of the Earth. He explained and demon- 
strated with a scale model the deployable mast's use. He also 
explained the importance of the attitude and orbit determina- 
tion avionics. A brief animated video showing how four beams 
would give a 225 km wide swath of the Earth topography was 
viewed. Thomas Henning discussed some of the usage of the 
digital terrain elevation data for flood relief planning, cell 
phone station placement, military planning for command and 
control centers, and flight simulation. He explained that public 
access to the most precise data would be limited. Diane Evans 
described data usage in flood prediction, earthquake fault 
identification and archeology. Marian Werner described the 
German and Italian input to the project. The questions from the 
press concerned the time to process this data, and the reasons 
for the limited access to the more precise data.

The primary objective of the STS-99 mission was to 
complete high resolution mapping of large sections of the 
Earth's surface using the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 
(SRTM). This radar system will produce unrivaled 3-D images 
of the Earth's Surface. This videotape presents a mission 
overview press briefing. The panel members are Dr. Ghassem 
Asrar, NASA Associate Administrator Earth Sciences; General 
James C. King, Director National Imagery and Mapping 
Agency (NIMA); Professor Achim Bachem, Member of the 
Executive Board, Deutschen Zentrum fur Luft- und Raumfahrt 
(DLR), the German National Aerospace Research Center; and 
Professor Sergio Deiulio, President of the Italian Space 
Agency. Dr. Asrar opened with a summary of the history of 
Earth Observations from space, relating the SRTM to this 
history. This mission, due to cost and complexity, required 
partnership with other agencies and nations, and the active 
participation of the astronauts. General King spoke to the 
expectations of NIMA, and the use of the Synthetic Aperture 
Radar to produce the high resolution topographic images. Dr. 
Achim Bachem spoke about the international cooperation that 
this mission required, and some of the commercial applications 
and companies that will use this data. Dr Deiulio spoke of 
future plans to improve knowledge of the Earth using satellites. 
Questions from the press concerned use of the information for 
military actions, the reason for the restriction on access to the 
higher resolution data, the mechanism to acquire that data for 
scientific research, and the cost sharing from the mission's 



176 



partners. There was also discussion about the mission's length.

Dr. Bahcall explained the four major areas that astronomers 
hope to better understand using the HST data: (1) The size and 
age of the universe; (2) quasars as flashlights to understanding 
other features of the universe; (3) planets around other stars; 
and (4) weather on the other planets of our Solar System. Other 
areas in which he hopes to have some understanding are 
galaxies under quasars, black holes, and missing matter. After 
his remarks, Dr. Bahcall presented a plaque to Charles Pellerin, 
who helped initiate the series of astrophysics telescopes. The 
HST is the first of these 'Great Observatories'. After the 
presentation, questions from the press were answered.

of Robert Sieck, Kennedy Space Center Launch Director, and 
George T Sassen, Director Shuttle Engineer. The STS-31 
launch was accomplished with very few problems. Terminal 
count was started and then stopped at 31 seconds because the 
software sensed that a valve was not positioned correctly. The 
valve was positioned correctly, the count was resumed, and the 
launch was carried out safely and successfully. George T 
Sassen explains, in detail, how the problem was corrected.

This video presents live animation of the Mars Surveyor 
Program. NASA is looking for faster, better, cheaper missions 
to Mars since the Mars Observer malfunctioned on August 22, 
1993. Daniel Goldin, NASA Administrator says that NASA 
will perform flyby missions, orbiters, landers, and sample 
returns to look for evidence of life on Mars. The first mission 
to Mars, the Mars Global Surveyor, was launched on Novem- 
ber 7, 1996, to provide geological, topographical, and atmo- 
spheric maps from its polar orbit about Mars. The second, the 
Mars Pathfinder, launched on December 4, 1996, photographs 
terrain, monitors weather and deploys a robotic rover that 
analyzes samples of Mars' rocks and soils. The third, the Mars 
Surveyor '98, includes two separate, launched spacecraft, the 
orbiter and the lander. The Orbiter was launched December 98 
from Cape Canaveral. Its 9-month journey to Mars will circle 
the planet every two hours and once stability was achieved, 
will configure itself for mapping. On January 3, 1999, the 
lander was on an 11 -month journey to Mars, scheduled to 
arrive on Mars on December 3, 1999 to record the geological

composition of the landing site from its SSI (Surface Stereo 

Imager).

receive a crew later in 2000. The crew, commanded by James 
D. Halsell, will include Pilot Scott J. Horowitz, Mission 
Specialists Mary Ellen Weber, Jeffrey N. Williams, James S. 
Voss, Susan J. Helms and Yuri V Usachev. This videotape 
provides live coverage of an interview with the mission 
commander Jim Halsell. He describes the influences on his life 
that led him to become a NASA astronaut, and the importance 
of the mission. He discusses the new glass cockpit design. He 
describes the flight plan and the docking maneuver. An 
important feature of this mission is the replacement of electric 
components, voltage and current regulators on the space 
station. Commander Halsell also describes the role of each 
crew member during the re-supply and refitting of the Space 
Station and reviews the priorities.

presents live footage of the successful Delta II/WIND space- 
craft launch from Pad 17B at the Eastern Test Range, Cape 
Canaveral Air Station, FL. Footage of engineering activity 
from launch control as well as narrative information concern- 
ing spacecraft configuration, equipment, instruments and ob- 
jectives is also presented. WIND is the first of two NASA 
spacecraft in the Global Geospace Science initiative and part of 
the ISTP Project. WIND is positioned in a sunward, multiple 
double-lunar swingby orbit with a maximum apogee of 250Re 
during the first two years of operation. This will be followed by 
a halo orbit at the Earth-Sun LI point. The main scientific 
objectives of the WIND mission are to provide complete 
plasma, energetic particle, and magnetic field input for mag- 
netospheric and ionospheric studies. The WIND spacecraft 
includes KONUS, the first Russian instrument to fly on an 
American satellite since civil space cooperation between the 
U.S. and Russia was resumed in 1987.

The Wind spacecraft represents one of NASA's contribu- 
tions to the International Solar Terrestrial Program (ISTP), an 
international effort to quantify the effects of solar energy on the 
Earth's magnetic field. Wind will provide continuous measure- 
ment of the solar wind, particularly charged particles and 
magnetic field data. The specific objectives of Wind are to: (1) 
provide complete plasma, energetic particle, and magnetic field 



193 



input for magnetospheric and ionospheric studies; (2) deter- 
mine the magnetospheric output to interplanetary space in the 
upstream region; (3) investigate basic plasma processes occur- 
ring in the near-Earth solar wind; and (4) provide baseline 
ecliptic plane observations to be used in heliospheric studies. 
This videotape shows the pre-dawn launch of the Wind 
spacecraft aboard a Delta 7925 on November 1, 1994. After the 
countdown and launch, the tape shows the activity in the 
Telemetry Room at Kennedy Space Center, where people are 
following the progress of the spacecraft. Following the activity 
in the telemetry room, there are four different replays of the 
launch from different locations. After showing the replays of 
the launch, the video returns to the Telemetry Room when an 
important stage in the launch and flight is achieved.

Shepherd is seen. The interview addresses many different 
questions including why Shepherd became interested in the 
space program, the events that led to his interest, the transition 
from the navy to his selection in the astronaut program. Other 
interesting information that this one-on-one interview dis- 
cusses are the main goals of the first Expedition Crew, their

making the ISS ready for human inhabitance, and all the 
specifics that will make his living arrangements difficult. 
Shepherd mentions his responsibilities during the much- 
anticipated two-day flight to the ISS, as well as the scheduled 
space-walk. Shepherd also discusses the crew's first tasks upon 
entrance including other scheduled tasks for the first week, 
docking from cargo ships, and spacecraft delivering equipment 
or performing Extra Vehicular Activities (EVA). He explains 
his interpretation of the meaning of mission success, and the

During processing work on the orbiter Discovery at Pad A, 
significant cracks were found on all four lug hinges on the two 
external tank umbilical door drive mechanisms. NASA man- 
agers opted to roll back the vehicle to the Vehicle Assembly 
Building (VAB) on March 7, and then to the Orbiter Processing 
Facility (OPF) for repair. Hinges were replaced with units 
taken from orbiter COLUMBIA, and reinforced. Discovery 
returned to the pad on April 1 . Shown are the cracked orbiter 
umbilical door hinges.
